Dr. Alison Gopnik – The Philosophical Baby: What Children’s Minds Tell Us About Truth, Love, and the Meaning of Life

In the last thirty years there has been a revolution in our scientific understanding of infants and young children. Dr. Gopnik will show that even the youngest babies have learning abilities that are more powerful than those of the smartest scientists and most advanced computers.
